Us magazine, citing a Hollywood insider, reports that Kardashian is in the running to play Kim Gotti, the daughter-in-law of the infamous New York mafioso. John Travolta has already been cast as the mob boss.

The film will reportedly be produced by Gotti's son, John Gotti Jr., who is married to the real-life Kim Gotti.

A source close to Kardashian told the magazine that "Kim is in talks to do the movie."

It wouldn't be the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star's first foray into acting. She has guest-starred on "CSI: NY" and "Beyond the Break," and she had a role in 2008's spoof-film "Disaster Movie" alongside Vanessa Minnillo.
